IGA-19-0001: Proposed Amendment to the Nederland Area Boulder County Comprehensive Development Plan


Comprehensive Development Plan IGA Open House

Why is the Town considering revisions to the Comprehensive Development Plan IGA with the County?

At the December 19, 2017 BOT meeting, four main goals were considered as follows:

1. Reduction of Emissions, Wildfire Prevention and Preservation of the Rural Mountain Character
2. Clarification of the rules for Annexation and Autonomy for the Town regarding Zoning and Building Projects, especially within our own town limits
3. Increased opportunities for people living on the town limits borders to be involved in the Town’s policy-making (voting, sitting on boards and commissions, running for public office, etc.)
4. Improved standards for intelligent developments and densification

Please join us at an open house presentation on Tuesday, February 12 from 6:30 until 8 pm at the Community Center regarding this important matter. Your input is valued!

Barker Meadow Park Survey

In light of recent developments, the PROSAB  board is withdrawing the current survey for Barker Meadow Park and will await further direction from the Board of Trustees.

Water Discoloration

The Utilities Department is aware of discolored water currently in the system and is working on the repair as we speak.  The cause is a broken water main near Barker Reservoir.  The discoloration comes from sediment in the pipe being stirred up due to the velocity at which highly pressurized water expels from a pipe during a main break.  There are no health concerns with the water, however all residents and businesses should flush their COLD water until the water runs clear before drinking or using for laundry or the like.  


Thank you for your understanding while the Utilities Department works to repair the main break.
